Lancaster High School linebacker Luke Roberts, who landed a scholarship offer from the
Buckeyes after an outstanding workout at the Ohio State Senior Advanced
Camp on June 25, returned to OSU for the first time since landing the
offer. Roberts visited Ohio State late Monday afternoon and liked what
he saw and heard.

“I
got to talk to coach (Luke) Fickell, coach (Mike) Vrabel and coach
(Greg) Gillum,” Roberts said. “It went really well. It was my first time
there on a real visit. I really enjoyed it.

“Sitting down and talking to coach Fickell – I really enjoyed
that. It was neat talking to coach Vrabel on the day he was named the
linebackers coach.”

In addition to talking to the coaches, Roberts also met with a
business school representative and toured the Ohio State campus a
little. He toured the Woody Hayes Facility and saw the weight room too.

Roberts recently landed scholarship offer No. 9, this one coming from Arizona.

“My dad went to Arizona so I grew up a fan of the school,” Roberts said. “If I named a top three they would be in there.”

In addition to Ohio State and Arizona, Roberts also has offers
from Purdue, Indiana, Cincinnati, Ohio University, Kent State, Bowling
Green and Buffalo.

“Arizona, along with Purdue and Ohio State – I’d say those are the three I’m deciding between,” Roberts said.

When asked if Ohio State is still his leader, Roberts said, “I
would say so. I’m going to talk to my family and pray. I’d say I’ll
decide in a week or two – possibly less.”

The 6-foot-2 and 225-pound Roberts is going into his third year
as a starting inside linebacker. He made 96 tackles including 23 for
loss during his junior season.

Bill Kurelic’s Comment: As I have said previously, I think
Roberts soon commits to the Buckeyes. I tend to think it will be by the
end of this coming weekend.
